I'll do a rundown, segment by segment review like some others do. Never done one before!
Starting the show with a rundown/recap/reminder from the commentators is something this fed does better than any other. I wish I had the motivation, patience and time to do it.
Opening with the divas was a nice change. Something you'd never see in today's WWE. Decent match here. Good to have Kharma make the interference to give her momentum heading into the big clash at SS against Phoenix and Chyna. Good post-match promo, a shame that we never see Kharma in the thread throwing down some IC work (I don't even know who plays her).
Bray Wyatt time! Eddie embraces his inner Wyatt well again with another great promo and branding! Eddie's doing a good job of portraying Wyatt exactly how he is in real life. I'm very interested to find out who will be the first to step up and try and face off with Wyatt in a feud. Could we perhaps find that out at Survivor Series?
Oh, looks like I didn't have to wait after all! Jeff Hardy doesn't like what he sees. I was actually wondering recently what had happened to Jeff Hardy, since I've not seen much of him in recent weeks. Hardy vs Wyatt for SS maybe? Or is this just the planting of the seeds to a post SS feud? We'll see.
Mankind misses Raven! He's lost without him, and Maria seems to share that concern!
Ummm, commentary say that Mankind and Maria will face Hogan and Kaitlyn, but I dont' read that Eve said that... SPOILERS!!!!!
Decent enough match next. Maria using the Mandible Claw? Nice!
Chris Jericho barging into Eve's office again lol! I won't say anything about the promo other than I continue to enjoy working with GG.
Kurt Angle, John Cena and indeed Eve serve up a good 3 way promo (not porno, that would just be wrong) here.
Angle vs Sting serves up a good match too, Sting gets another win giving him plenty of momentum heading into the ppv. Curious where that loss leaves Angle heading into the ppv to face Cena.
ALIEAIIIIIII ELIEEEEEEAIIIIIII ALIEEEEEAIIII ELLIEEEEAAAAAAI ALIEEEEAI ELIAAAAIII!!!! I love Muhammad Hassan's theme lol, and I loved the character in real life too, not sure if I've not quite connected with him yet since he's come here though, and this match against Ryback should be interesting as far as the outcome goes.
Ahhh, A-Ry distracts Hassan for the Ryback win! Of course! Ryback gets momentum to match Sting's momentum, and Riley's really getting in the head of Hassan now!
Ryback with a respectable promo, Sting's promo was great. Really interesting to see who wins this clash at Survivor Series, since surely the winner will enter the hunt for the WWE Championship?
Great choice of video for this match, I enjoyed watching that match between the KoW and Generico/Cabana.
The champs retain, as expected, and the rest of both factions run down for the brawl! Again, a bit predictable, but what more would you expect before both factions clash at SS? Can't wait to see how this match goes at the ppv!
Meh promo from Hassan. Like I said before, I've not really connected with him here as I connected and bought into him in real life. I'm just not digging the direction he's going in I guess. I'm not getting the character the 'anti-American extremist' portrayed in the real WWE here, even when he was facing Hogan (the most American guy possible).
The last segment, well, again, what can I say. I love working with Eddie and GG. I have a feeling this won't be the end of the Jericho/Rhodes feud (but that's just me speculating), and I hope that's indeed the case, because we definitely work good together and bring out something close to our best at least (at least I hope so).
Overall a great go-home show. I'll give it an A.
